Conservative news agency Tasnim said it was a military cargo plane carrying meat from the Kyrgyzstan capital of Bishkek.

Fath airport is near Karaj in the central province of Alborz.

The plane crashed at Fath Airport when it was meant to land at the nearby Payam International Airport, about 25 miles west of Tehran, the Iranian capital.

Fath Airport belongs to Iran's powerful paramilitary Revolutionary Guard.

Images carried by Iran's state-run media showed the burned-out tail of the plane sticking out, surrounding by charred homes.

"The plane was a cargo Boeing 707 that overshot the runway during its landing", Iran's aviation organisation spokesman Reza Jafarzadeh told state broadcaster IRIB.

It was not immediately clear who owned the plane.

A spokeswoman for Kyrgyzstan's Manas airport said the plane, en route from Kyrgyzstan's Manas airport, belonged to Iran's Payam Air.

Emergency officials say rescue teams have recovered bodies of several victims from the site of cargo plane crash.

Saha Airlines operated one of the world's last commercial flights of the Boeing 707, which was first manufactured in 1958 and helped usher in the jet age.
